Fort Lauderdale - Saltwater Fishing Report
Our SE Florida Holiday Season offshore action is in full swing as we approach the Thanksgiving Holiday!
Thanksgiving is a time to pause and take stock of all of the blessings that have been bestowed upon us and our families and friends. We would like to take this opportunity to express our sincere thanks and appreciation to every single one of our incredible clients who fished with the Lady Pamela II Team in 2018! You are the "reason for the season" all year long. Without you, we are nothing and we hope that you enjoy fishing with us and feel appreciated by the entire team…because you are.
As you set aside your turkey for its slow thaw over the next few days, let's talk about the bite and recent catches.
Sportfishing Report: Sushi On Parade!
The Blackfin Tuna bite has been on an incredible hot streak over the past month. The Blackfins have been abundant in huge schools out to 300 feet of water. The Blackfins have been in the 5-10 pound range and continue to respond to trolled blue/white combination Sea Witches and Bonito Strips with black/red skirts. We typically troll them at 5 – 6 knots. There have also been a few Wahoos hanging around the schools (they like sushi even more than we do) and several clients hooked them on the troll as well.
The Sailfish are Here In Force:
Our clients have enjoyed stellar Sailfishing as our fleet has switched over to fishing live baits underneath our fishing kites for multiple catches. We can fish up to three (3) live baits per kite, with at least two (2) kites up at any one time. We're fishing between 90 and 250 feet of water. We've also had luck shallower than 90 feet as we watch Sailfish cartwheel in the midst of Ballyhoo schools up on the reef. Kite-fishing is an amazing and engaging experience as you get to see the Sailfish AS THEY EAT the bait. Nothing gets the blood pumping like watching a double- or triple-header Sailfish bite up on the surface.
